People in the area have been reporting and taking pictures of their vehicles absolutely covered in splattered bugs while driving near the floodwaters on I-29. The vehicles are so covered that it actually looks like they drove through mud and drivers are having to pull over to scrape off their windshields in order to see (wipers aren’t doing the job). So, word of advice, pack a scraper and some extra water or cleaner just in case.
